This blog very rarely covers hip-hop. I’m not sure why. I mean it does, but very rarely.
It’s gotta be something outrageously killer to grab my attention. And well here it is. Of course it’s well known that hip-hop is the only suitable music to drive to. And it’s the weekend.
The beat here is highly unusual and the track is rhythmically dense, tackling all that’s political and religious. On May 15th, Atlanta rapper Killer Mike (above, looking deadly) will be releasing R.A.P. Music. (abbreviating “Rebellious African People’s Music.”)
Load up Soundcloud on your smart-phone and go cruise round the city with your sunroof down.
